I had an opportunity to experience these watch trunks from Piaget a few months ago while some Piaget representatives where in San Francisco at a watch show. I was impressed that the company had these enormous custom made watch cases fit for a passenger on the Titanic. What I didn't know was that enough people would declare "I want one," sufficient for Piaget to go out and produce enough of them for sale to the semi-public. Well here you have it, the Piaget Collector's Trunk is surely kit for a king, or any other manner of royalty (price to correspond).

I could not find the name of this new Laco watch. Perhaps if I spoke German that would be possible or I am just too lazy to write to Roger Ruegger, from who excellent (German) website I found the picture. No doubt I will discover it soon enough and update this article, I hope. Roger, like myself is a great lover of diving watches, and happened to snap this image while at Basel World (2008) in April. I have always had a fondness for Laco watches, and this one seemed particularly attractive.

The precision sculpted look of the case and hands is anything but over the top, though it feels novel, and appears perfectly comfortable in its skin. This is of course a tool, and also a timepiece. Don't confuse it with a fashion accessory, although it stands in as one admirably. As such, this is an extremely sturdy watch built to withstand the world's most extreme adventuring, and this watch will survive in places you won't.
There is also the big date function, which looks nice, and the subsidiary seconds dial, which is also 'OK.' The watch epitomizes acceptable boldness, standard eccentricity, and mediocre excitement. The best part is likely the hands. So those are pretty well done, but then again they look like Japanese cartoon swords stuck in a watch face. Inside the Zodiac ZMX 03 is a Ronda Startech quartz movement, and the 50mm sized case is massive with 28mm wide lugs. A sapphire crystal face helps to give this watch some justification for its price, but not much. Retail is 5, but don't spend a penny over 0.

I can hear you collectively rejoicing out there Citizen Campanola lovers. This is one of the nicest Campanola watches I have seen in a long time and represents two things. First, a beautiful cream colored dial with the signature Citizen Campanola high quality application with rich textures and deep gloss. I have a feeling its hard to truly appreciate the face of this watch without seeing it. There is almost a sunburst pattern in the design. The cream colored dials are very new and only began production this year.Read more ›
